Riyad Mahrez has been allowed to leave the Algeria squad to “formalise” his move from Leicester City, according to the Algerian Football Federation (FAF).
The 26-year-old has been the subject of three bids from Italian club Roma since expressing his desire to leave the 2015-16 Premier League champions.
Roma’s third bid was said to be £32m and they have now ended their interest.
The FAF said Mahrez had been given permission to miss training to agree a deal before the transfer deadline.
Barcelona, Manchester United and Chelsea are also said to be interested in the winger, but Arsenal are not in contention, despite reports to the contrary.
